Best Practices for Power Season

May 18, 2016 by Jonah Cagley

For people in North America, summer is power season. That's when demand for electric power is the highest, especially from homes and businesses that use air conditioning. As that demand puts strain on what a power utility can provide, power problems become more common. Utility power is also vulnerable to severe weather, such as lightning, thunder storms, tornadoes and hurricanes. These weather events can affect transmission lines, utility poles, transformers, and other power delivery equipment.

The most common power problems that result from heavy demand are temporary drops in voltage, called brownouts, and long term outages, called blackouts. These can be inconvenient if you're using home and office equipment, and may even harm sensitive electronics.
